Where is Craig Bellamy now?
The first player to score for seven Premier League clubs, Craig Bellamy hung up his boots after playing in the Premier League with his home town club Cardiff City.
In 2008, whilst still an active player, Craig Bellamy founded the Craig Bellamy Foundation which was a not for profit football and education centre in Sierra Leone.
Unfortunately the foundation unexpectedly closed in 2016.

Bellamy still has strong links with Cardiff and owned a construction company, a wine bar and restaurant called Pier 64 as well as a mixed martial arts gym in the city.
In March 2017, his construction company Digger 39 Ltd was wound up after accruing debts of £1.8 million.
In 2013, Bellamy released his autobiography GoodFella.
Bellamy had always said that he wanted to get into coaching when he retired from playing and started working at the Cardiff City youth academy on a part time basis whilst working towards his coaching badges.
In December 2015 Bellamy stepped into Gary Neville’s shoes as an analyst on Sky Sports’ Monday Night Football show.
He proved to be a success and was promptly signed up by ITV to join their team of pundits for their Euro 2016 coverage. He also contributed to The Times newspaper in a regular column during the tournament.
In December 2016, Craig Bellamy returned to his former club Cardiff City as their new player development manager overseeing the club’s youth development as they progress to the first team.
In May 2017 it was announced that Bellamy will be taking charge of the Cardiff City under 18’s side for the forthcoming season in his first managerial post.
